        The one requirement for Confederate 730 notes was that a date was to be applied by the agent before the note was paid out.  We have sorted these notes by Person/Date and PlaceDate; but, until now, no one has saved them by Date Only.   Most of these dates are manuscript yet a few are found as stamped dates.  The ink used for manuscript dates is most often Brown in various shades; but, you can find the occasional Red, Blue and Blue-Black colors as well.  Date stamps are shown in Black, Orange, Red-Orange and Blue colors.  A variety of Issued Dates are imaged on here sorted by Month, Day and Year.  The earliest Issued Date in this sample is August 8, 1862 and the latest Issued Date is January 19, 1865.  If you have a Date Only not illustrated and would like us to include it please contact Roger Adamek or Crutch Williams.

Red Date Stamp
These stamps are found on the obverse of 730 interest notes.
They are also found on a wide variety of other CSA demand (Type) notes.

        Only Issuer Identified ~ by handwriting!   
We discovered an Interest Paid with initial EC. 
Then we found Interim Deposit Receipts & Exchange Certificates to compare handwriting.
His handwriting is so distinct.  They were without question an absolute match.

Red Date Stamp
This section will be expanded as more images come in
Found on 730 Notes

1862   *   1863

There has been a great deal of discussion regarding the reasoning behind the application of Red Date Stamps to various types of notes over the years.  On 730 Trains (T39/40) they are always found on the obverse above the right serial number & plate letter.  On the few Hoers (T41) they have been seen on, the stamp is located above the date at upper right.  Are they Re-Issue Dates; Are they Validation Dates attesting to a note's genuineness; or, are they a combination of both Re-Issue and Validation when found on 730 notes?  Regardless of your opinion, Red Date Stamps are scarce and are a great addition to any collection of Confederate 730 notes.

Two Varieties of 91262 Stamp
RDS62_091262_2Var
T39 H&L

If you were to call a Red Date Stamp common, I suppose it would be this one - 91262.  It is found on a number of different Type notes and on a large quantity of Hoyer & Ludwig T39 Trains.  There was a small horde of well over 100+ H&L Trains with this stamp that surfaced over 15 years ago and all were disbursed quickly.  I have shown this image to illustrate that there were at least two different hand stamps used to date reissued notes.  I believe it is also found on a few other odd Trains.  I am not aware of it being found on a Hoer as I write this text.

Please report any dates not illustrated and provide an image of the entire front of the note at 100% x 200dpi.  Thanks, Crutch
